A tribute to the Other
Ninety-nine years after its scandalous premiere, Igor Stravinsky's 'Le Sacre du Printemps' has become a cultural monument with an important position in the collective memory. A new interpretation of the work by French choreographer Laurent Chétouane aims at putting the great myth into question. 'Sacrificing' the sacrifice itself, his choreography tries to rehabilitate the original strangeness of the piece. The dance is conceived as a tribute to the figure of the Other, which undermines the traditional regime of logos, reason and representation. By calling on affective techniques and a thinking of pathos and response, Chétouane continues his research of a theatre beyond images and concepts.
